The road journey from the UK to Sailaway.

The objective of our logbook is to document our travels and experiences, allowing our family and friends (both of them!) to keep up to date with our progress. Our aim is to see "the real countries" as we travel, staying away from the heavily commercialised areas when ever possible. We hope you enjoy the content, any questions or comments please feel free to contact us.


This year (2017), our plan is to drive to Sailaway once again, our road trip to Turkey (2013) has many great memories, we plan to make this journey just as interesting. We begin 6th April with a ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam, spending 6-8 weeks, or perhaps more, crossing Europe. Our route is flexible, we have a number of destinations defined, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. A ferry over to Corsica then onto Sardinia. Once back to Sailaway we will leave the car in the marina and sail somewhere? We will return back to the UK by road in September via a different route yet to be determined?


We will modify the website to include our over land trips, documenting the journeys as we travel as we would on Sailaway. Please note, to accommodate slower download speeds, the size of each page has been restricted to eliminate "time outs" during downloads.
